It is the largest library in the country, largest in Europe and one of the largest in the world. Its holdings crossed over 47 million units in 2017. It is a federal library overseen by the Ministry of Culture, including being under its fiscal jurisdiction. Its foundation lay in the opening of the Moscow Public Museum and Rumyantsev Museum in Moscow in 1862.
